This comes from one of our fabulous readers. Thanks to Michelle for taking the time to send in a submission for my grilling project! She says that she brings this to potlucks, but always ends up coming home with an empty container. You know it must be good!
Michelleâ€™s Pasta Salad Â
1 16oz. package garden rotiniÂ (Aldi has usually)
1 bottle Aldi Fit and Active Italian
Â½ cup chopped red onion
2 roma tomatoes, diced
1 cup diced cucumber
1/2 cup sliced baby carrots
Â½ pkg frozen vegetable blend (broccoli, cauliflower etc)
1Â can black olives, slicedÂ (use 1/2 can)
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook pasta according to package directions.Â Drain pasta and allow hot water to collect in another bowl.Â Rinse pasta with cold water to chill quickly and drain well.
Meanwhile put onions and frozen veggies in the hot water from the pasta and let sit for a few minutes to soften onions and vegetables.Â Drain well.
Combine all ingredients â€“ you will not use the entire bottle of Italian dressing at first.Â After chilling for a few hours, add the remainder of the bottle.Â
